These short walks are a good alternative when we cannot go into the school. Most of the same information is covered as on the school tours but we will remain outside. Tours must be scheduled by close of business on the previous day. If scheduled tours are not at capacity, visitors without a reservation will be welcome to join. Tours fill up quickly. There is no guarantee of tour availability without a reservation. Making a reservation two weeks in advance is recommended.
Visitors will take a walk down Park St. while a Park Ranger retells the turbulent events of the first days of integration in 1957. These short guided walks allow you to walk the street that captured the world's attention in 1957, stand on the steps where the 101st Airborne soldiers escorted the Little Rock Nine into the building that September, and reflect upon the lasting significance of those events in the Commemorative Garden.
